When you arrive at the foot of Mount Beuvray, where the ancient town of Bibracte is located, the first thing you see is trees. 1,000 hectares of beech and fir forest. In the heart of a 1000-hectare forest nestles a town that was home to between 5 and 10,000 inhabitants during the pivotal period of the Roman conquest of Gaul. A short-lived town, capital of the powerful Aedui people, which was a major centre of trade, commerce and politics in the 2nd and 1st centuries BC. Today, you walk through the bases of the ancient walls, dwellings or public buildings, pass by the remains of a convent from the late Middle Ages, discover a fountain.
